. the president is very singular about not having somebody stand on stage with him. i bet you bill clinton will be standing on stage with him during the entire time when barack obama speaks because clinton is considered a real concrete asset that can change undecided votes. >> speaking of changing let's go back to mitt romney now. he seems to be moving more toward the middle in these closing days, not a surprise to the critics who called him a flip-flopper from the beginning. what do you think this will mean for those republicans who hoped he'd stay more conservative? >> let me quote the virginia governor bob mcdonnell who is a major supporter of mitt romney who said that his own elections are won in the middle. you remember his own press person, romney during the primaries said we're going to do etch a sketch, that is, go to the right to get the nomination and then have to go to the have to get independents and moderates to win -- to the right to get independents and moderates to win the election. those who are for him will say he's pragmatic and those who oppose him will say once again y
his message. he has a new closing argument. he's dropped the line and instead he's about bill clinton and what bill clinton's role was in doing kind of the right by the economy. and now talking about himself, barack obama, president obama as a leader who unites people. brings people together. and is now going back to the message of change from 2008, saying not talking about changing washington, but bringing americans' voices into washington and talking about himself as a unifier, clearly a mantle he is picking up in the wake of his leadership role in the role he's taken after superstorm sandy. >> it's amazing. the twist and turns this race has taken, i guess every presidential race does in the final days. a new polling out from colorado, still a very tight race there. what does it mean for next tuesday? what do the number show? >> the numbers in colorado show 50-48 for the president. that's a statistical tie. this is a state that is going down right to the very end. you can tell that when you're here. the early voting. this is one of the places republicans have even a slight advantage
president bill clinton acknowledging this enthusiasm story line that's an undercurrent. you can't deny it. >> i'm so proud to have worked for bill clinton. can i say that on the air? >> are you angling for awe new job? >> he's not running for anything. i remember working for him. he was the same way then as he is today. he's so optimistic, but so are americans. americans are by nature optimistic he people, and that's one of the reasons why this country is so special and has on so many inonovatorinnovators. we're by nature future oriented people. president clinton himself said elections are about the future. they're about whand of future you see. what he articulates is something i think is a bonafide feeling among the democratic race. we are enthusiastic about it. you can feel it. >> he chose an interesting way to articulate it. i am far more enthusiastic about president about obama thavenlt a few years. >> anne it this endorsement by mayor bloomberg surprised everyone yesterday, citing climate change that he decided to support the president on this. let me play what's getting traction. ma
swing state, that of virginia, bill clinton campaigning on behalf of the president. let's listen in at chesapeake, virginia, at indiana river high school. [ applause ] >> i don't know about you, but i'd rather you save the gasoline and export the oil if that's what we need to do. and that's why governor romney is having such a hard time breaking through in ohio. so what did he do? he ran -- he put -- he put a bogus ad on saying that for president had allowed jeep to move jobs to china. then he said the president had allowed chrysler, which owns jeep, to move jobs to china. then not satisfied with that, since fiat owns part -- he said -- i can't make this up. he said that the president had allowed the italians to move jobs to china. >> all right. you're listening there to bill clinton. he's in indian river high school there in chesapeake, virginia, campaigning on behalf of the president who is campaigning in the swing state of ohio. of course, if you want to see any more of clinton's speech, go to cnn.com/live right now. all right. now to the latest on superstorm sandy. there are
of them. is bill clinton turning into the party's go-to guy to pick up the slack of what the president obviously can't be out there doing because his attention is needed for what's taking place with sandy recovery? >> sure, if you can't have the president or the vice president, certainly bill clinton, former president clinton is at the top of the list. he is well loved and respected here in ohio and throughout much of the rest of the country, and i think he's doing a wonderful thing for the president and understanding the circumstances of this storm, but, thomas, i think both campaigns have now come down to a get out the vote effort. i don't think people will be much influenced by tv ads and going forward. i think we are in a place -- whichever campaign is most successful in actually getting their people to the polls and that will be the campaign they think will win. >> what do you think is taking place in ohio right now with the fact that mitt romney is not having campaign events and as chuck pointed out he's shifted into more relief-type efforts and people are sending me tweets that
a president who shared these beliefs, a guy named bill clinton. [cheers and applause] >> and so our beliefs were put to the test. his economic plan asked the wealtheist americans to pay a little bit more so we could continue to invest in our people, continue to invest in ideas, and inc inventory no sraeugss, invest in our infrastructure. at the time a republican congressman and senate candidate by the name of mitt romney. [booing ] >> no, no, don't boo, vote. vote. voting is the best revenge. at the time mitt romney said bill clinton's plan would hurt the economy and kill jobs. turns out his math back then was just as bad as it is today. [cheers and applause] >> because by the end of president clinton's second term america created 23 million new jobs and incomes were up and poverty was down and our deficit became the biggest surplus in history. so, our ideas were tried and tested and they worked. their ideas were also tried and they didn't workout so well. remember, in the eight years after bill clinton left office they tried this top down economics, they tried this you're on your own econo
is a complete head shake. i am not convinced how tough it is for mitt romney. you notice that bill clinton will be in pennsylvania on monday. aside from president obama the former president is the best surrogate his campaign has. bill clinton is going to be in pennsylvania on monday, the fact that obama campaign has spent more money on television in pennsylvania suggest there is some concern that the race has pulled closer than the obama folks thought it it could would be. >> heather: and storm sandy and jobs report. last one that came out on friday? >> these are both hard questions. simply because we've hevnhev an event like this speaking of sandy so close to a national election. how voters respond to the negativity and clamor of the campaign which as come back to full swing as to what has happened in new jersey, new york and connecticut, it's such an open question. it will be interesting to see how it plays out in terms of whether voters take that into account and think about that on tuesday. >> heather: we appreciate your insight. >> gregg: becoming to the bottom of the terror attack in
. his name was bill clinton. when he was first elected, he asked the wealthiest americans to pay a little more, so we could reduce the deficit and still make investments in things like education, train, science, research. and guess what? plenty of folks running for congress at the time said it would hurt the economy. that it would kill jobs. and if that argument sounds familiar, one of those candidates back then happens to be running for president right now. and it turns out, their math was just as bad back then as it is today because, by the end of bill clin totoclinton's turn am created 23 million jobs. the biggest surplus in our history. wisconsin we know the ideas that work. we also know the ideas that don't work. because in the eight years after bill clinton left office his policies were reversed. the wealthiest americans got tax cuts they didn't need, and that we couldn't afford. companies enjoyed tax breaks for shipping jobs overseas, insurance companies, oil companies, wall street given free license do what they pleased. folks, at the top got to play by a different set of
backward on that. in the 1990s bill clinton raised exactly the high income tax rates that barack obama wants to return the rates to. and the 2000s which he did not mention when george bush followed the policies very similar to what mitt romney is proposing, they actually added more than 1 million fewer private sector jobs if george bush's first term than president obama has under his first term so i really do not think that the basic economics or the history says that just going back to deregulation and high rate-- high income rate cuts is the thing that leads to growth. >> brown: and do you think professor -- >> two decades of strong growth, we saw two decade, 80ous and 90s with extraordinary growth. economists called it the great moderation long boom and that's because the stable policies are put in place. tax reform, if you like, of 1986. a bipartisan reform president reagan worked with democrats in congress, that is the kind of thing we nude to get the strong economy back. >> back to you pfessor goolsbee, just this question about -- >> i agree with that i think tax reform and a gra
on that. in the 1990s bill clinton raised exactly the high income tax rates that barack obama wants to return the rates to. and the 2000s which he did not mention when george bush followed the policies very similar to what mitt romney is proposing, they brief last word on that? >> well, i think as we are talking about four years what is going to happen the next four years. that say time where a president can make a tremendous difference. and we're talking about the past four years. and the president could have made auch betr policy with the unemployment being so high. >> brown: all right, john taylor and austan goolsbee, thanks so much. >> thank you >> brown: and if you're ready for more analysis on the jobs numbers, you'll find it, as always, on paul solman's "making sense" page online. >> woodruff: still to come on the newshour: misery in the aftermath of the super-storm; civilian deaths in syria; a spotlight on immigration in iowa; plus, shields and brooks. but first, the other news of the day. here's kwame holman. >> holman: the news on bs wasn't enough to lift wall street today
bill clinton raised exactly the high income tax rates that barack obama wants to return the rates to. and the 2000s which he did not mention when george bush followed the policies very similar to what mitt romney is proposing, theyic if one or e other is elected. >> right. you know, i was in the white house for a while and i used to joke, i crawled all around in the basement, i have yet to find that switch down there that you just flip it and then everything gets better. i think 90 plus percent of what happens in a growing economy has nothing to do with washington. what the president and what washington in general can do is try to set the stage and set a groundwork for policy at could encourage growth. and i think the shorter term that you are thinking about, the less can be done specifically by the president. so if you are asking over a one month or three month period, there's very little the president can do. if you start asking over a five year, ten year period, then the policy decisions they make can influence quite a lot the way things go. >> brown: and john taylor, brief last w
to completely abolish student loans for college. no wonder bill clinton and the washington post both endorse john delaney for his deep understanding of job creation. he'll be "an unusually effective congressman." delaney: it's not about politics. it's about doing what's right to help the middle class. i'm john delaney, and i approve this message. >>> it's 6:15 right now. if you see snowplows around the stadium this morning don't panic. the district is holding a dry run to make sure crews are ready for winter weather. about 700 plow drivers will hit their regular routes while the rest of the snow team will make sure they're up to date on what needs to be done the next time it snows. >> a live look outside, you can see the washington monument off in the distance there. it's friday. so it's all good. yeah, we don't need any of that winter weather right now. >> i feel like we're going to get it soon. i don't know why. >> because you know what? because it felt wintery yesterday. >> maybe that's it and we had that crazy weather. >> and west virginia is getting inundated with it. >> it's close. >>
are on the rise. reagan had 28 per year on average. under nine under bill clinton. obama, 153. he takes the cake. heritage foundation rates to put this in perspective in somewhere in america in 2011 disaster occurred every day and a half. so strong it required the intervenon of the federal government because each of these disasters overwhelm the state and the local government. don't misunderstand me, there should not be any federal response to disasters, but the current system is broken. let's at least fess up to that. if you want a better example, look at home depot. they met a full week before the storm to move high demand items like generators, supply wood, bleach from stores outside the storm's path to the stars inside the path. by the friday before the storm 350 he depot tickets were deployed to a command center at the company's atlanta headquarters to coordinate response. 350 folks. a conference room outfitted with tvs monitoring local and national newscast gave company managers up-to-date. home depot, organized, planning ahead. two weeks after home depot started the planning and nearly a
to manipulate media coverage? >> to quote bill clinton, they think you're stupid. it's more a play for the media being stupid, saying look here's a chance to even it up, the press loves to even it up and pennsylvania is a way -- >> are they trying to get obama to put resources into pennsylvania? >> it is part of it. there is an element of a head fake to see can we shake something lose here, can we see movement in numbers, can we make them spend time there, maybe once you're playing those kinds of games you know that your path to 70 is limited. as you said you better get ohio because pennsylvania is garbage. >> when people tune in on tuesday night and they see you lawrence o'donnell reading these election results. >> no, they're going to see rachel maddow. i will be sitting somewhere nearby being very quiet. >> there's a funny thing where they're going to look at the bottom of the screen and see these votes coming in, it's going to start at zero and go p. but that's an artificiality. he has what looks to be a billing lead there and that is concrete. that's not polling. that's ballots. >> part of
tomorrow. concord, new hampshire, with bill clinton. hollywood, florida, with pit bull. and aurora, colorado, with dan's favorite, dave matthews. >> it's the other way around. >> i'm the dave fan. he's the pit bull fan. >> reporter: i confuse you guys all the time. i'm sorry. i apologize. >> jake, thanks so much. >>> as jake mentioned, it's all about the battleground states and the eight, key races. last night for mitt romney, it was all about ohio. abc's david muir is with the romney campaign in newington, new hampshire. good morning to you, david. >> reporter: good morning, bianna. we have kid rock on the romney campaign. we listened to him last night in ohio. in new hampshire, mitt romney holding a rally a short time from now. voters know this is where his second home is. he was the governor of neighboring massachusetts. but the real sign of this campaign is not taking the four electoral votes for granted. as jake alluded to all eyes of the campaign on the states they're truly eyeing. overnight, mitt romney in the must-win state of ohio, with his wife, ann, his five sons, his ru

people are seeing that. >> and you mentioned florida as well. former president bill clinton making five stops, i believe, there as well. so pulling out all the big guns, if you will. yourself included on that list. i'm curious, though, you talk about out west in your home state, this new romney ad. it was an unannounced ad. but basically it starts off -- it's a spanish language ad. it starts off by saying who supports barack obama? and then it goes on to show the niece of fidel castro, mariel lacaslmariela castro and shows hugo chavez when he recently said that he would vote for president obama. the obama campaign said mitt romney continues to play chavez's game, giving him the attention that he thrives on that he doesn't deserve. this ad, sir, is being described as a last-minute push to try to win over latino voters. do you believe it would be effective? >> no, it's not going to be effective because it has no factual basis. that relationship with cuba and venezuela is pretty frosty on human rights grounds, on many other grounds. my sense is that what the romney campaign is doing is tha
is not letting up yet is -- they sent bill clinton there today. this is him earlier this morning. >> i hear all these people say, oh, i was so enthusiastic four years ago. i had so much hope for change. and i'm disappointed. let me tell you something, i may be the only person in america, but i am far more enthusiastic about president obama this time than i was four years ago. >> larry, so on your map, you have florida as leaning republican, but the in your blog, you point out that romney will be stumping there in the last four days. is that evidence that the romney campaign doesn't feel that it's in the bag for them and that there could be movement there for the president? >> it's not in the bag, that's for sure. the reason we have it in the republican camp is because it leans slightly republican. one of the reporters down there, adam smith of the tampa bay times says romney probably has a lead in that corridor that often determines florida elections. but at the same time, he says the obama camp has been doing an extraordinary job in mining the maximum out of the heavily democratic south florid
, where he will be stumping with former president bill clinton. >> it promises to be an exciting and very rapid day out there. thank you so much. we'll see you again from the trail, kristen. we have more headlines from the campaign trail. mitt romney drew his largest crowd yet in ohio last night with 18,000 supporters in westchester. >> now i have a question for you, are you finally ready for real change? as you know, four years ago, candidate barack obama promised to do so very much. but he's fallen so very short. >> after governor romney first stop this morning in new hampshire he heads to iowa, then on to colorado. running mate paul ryan will hold events in ohio, pennsylvania, virginia, and florida. meanwhile, president obama was quick to respond to governor romney's latest attacks during his tour through ohio on friday. >> suddenly he's the candidate of change. but we know what change looks like. and what he's trying to sell, that ain't it. that ain't it. >> two new nbc/"wall street journal"/marist polls to show with you this morning. president obama with a six-point lead among likely
. seems to be firmly in the obama column. today the obama campaign announcing bill clinton will also be going to minnesota tomorrow. is there a battle brewing for minnesota now? >> well, there ought not be. minnesota has voted democratic since 1972 because it voted for walter monday dale one of the few states that voted for walter monday dale. it's pretty reliably democratic although republicans have been competitive in state elections. is there a battle brewing? i don't think so. again what the romney campaign is doing is looking for ohio insurance. they have not been running ahead in ohio so they are looking every where they k-minnesota, michigan, pennsylvania to try to find some other state that can replace ohio. >> bill schneider of the third way and emily from "the washington post." appreciate your time. thank you both. >>> the east coast starting to slow a pain staking process of recovering from the devastation of hurricane sandy. new york's staten island one of the areas hardest hit of the storm, 22 of new york's 40 fatalities were on staten island. richard lui has been there
